Africanized Honey Bees

Lately, we here at Beeline Pest Control have been receiving a large number of calls for a more aggressive honey bee attacking our customers. These are a pest called Africanized Honey Bees and are incredibly dangerous to try to handle on your own. The best way to determine what kind of terrible, stinging insect is bothering you is to call a trained Beeline Pest Control technician. We always provide free inspections for possible pest control for bees, because you don’t want to assume . Africanized Honey Bees have become very active in the San Antonio & Cibolo area. Below is information that can help you be on the lookout for Africanized Honey Bees, as they can escalate very quickly and the sooner you call Beeline Pest Control for a Spray treatment, the sooner you can return safely to your yard.

Africanized Honey Bees in San Antonio can be larger than regular bees, but due to their ability to cross breed with regular bees it can be difficult to tell immediately by their size. They do tend to be darker than average bees as well, but again due to cross breeding this may not always be the case. Africanized Honey Bees can even affect customers who may not personally have bees in their yard or trees because Africanized Honey Bees can travel up to a mile when agitated. They can be very sensitive to noise, so trying to mow the yard can become very dangerous. We even had a call to take care of an incredibly aggressive hive that have sent our customer’s landscaper to the hospital recently! This is because once a hive becomes africanized, the drone bees go out in larger numbers causing the possibility for more dangerous stinging issues.*

Our trained Beeline Pest Control technicians are prepared to help with Africanized Honey Bees every day. Our technicians carry a comprehensive, protective suit on them. Our technicians have a protective mask as well as heavy duty gloves and a suit that are designed to protect against aggressive insects such as bees. Beeline Pest Control treats Africanized Honey Bees in the safest way, which is a thorough spray treatment on the infected hive. The technicians will not only coat the hive but spray around the area to ensure all the bees come into contact with the treatment. We have even come back at night for customers with incredibly severe cases, when more of the population are in the hive for the night and can be exposed to the spray treatment.
